Eugene F. Tharalson, MD
Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Gene Tharalson attended Seattle University, a Jesuit school in the center of the city. A major in chemistry gave him the opportunity to work as an atmospheric chemist for the year following graduation. In spite of challenging work that took him all the way to Antarctica, he very quickly realized that this would not be the career path for him. Nine months later, he enrolled at the Medical College of Wisconsin (Go Packers!). His first interest in gastroenterology developed during an elective rotation as a medical student, and continued throughout his residency at the University of Arizona in Tucson. After serving there as a chief resident, he entered gastroenterolgy fellowship at the Phoenix VA/Good Samaritan program. There his interests included endoscopic ultrasonography, Barrett’s esophagus, and the natural history of cirrhosis. In addition to developing his skills in gastroenterology, he became known during his fellowship as a dynamic speaker. Perhaps his best-known lecture is an in-depth review of intestinal gas. His career goals include general gastroenterolgy practice with an emphasis on endoscopic ultrasound. He now resides in Scottsdale with Erin, his wife of three years.
